Rest In Peace President Ford

Published by at 9:17 am under All General Discussions

It is sad to wake up this morning and have the first news be that of the death of a good President. The news stories will say it better than I can, but Gerald Ford was the ultimate example of sacrificing political gain in order to do right by the country. After Bill Clinton held on to power for no useful purpose, and spent 8 years working on a legacy verses what was needed for the country, we can all see the difference “in style”. Political expediency is the norm right now. Staying on the best course, despite the news media’s lame and consistent harping, is becoming a rare trait. The news media will never be able to undo the damage did while this man was President. They scoffed at Gerald Ford from the Ivory Towers of unsustainable arrogance at every opportunity. Just as with the passing of President Reagan, the media wiill choke down their dislike and pretend to redeem themselves as they cover the passing of this good man. Or maybe they won’t. One thing about liberals is their innate ability to be tacky at any cost. But as usual, the media is the sideshow. The main event is this man’s life long dedication and sacrifice to all of us. Thank you Mr. President. God speed.

    It’s not hyperbole to say that by pardoning Nixon, Ford saved the republic. RIP

    And it was unpopular at the time.

    “Bill Clinton held on to power for no useful purpose” – great observation.

    Remember the Mayagüez.

    What is even simply pathetic is the left most nut roots are almost dancing on the grave of a man some of them hardly knew.

    I won’t send a direct link because it is so over the top but a link to commentary and a sample of the disrespect even for the dead.

  6. Necrofagia…

    Con il cadavere di Gerald R. Ford ancora caldo, Bob Woodward scrive sul Washington Post un articolo vergognoso, al solo scopo di utilizzare la morte del 38° presidente degli Stati Uniti per screditare l’amministrazione Bush. Niente di nuovo sul front…

    Has anyone tempered their enthusiasm, reading Ford’s criticism of Bush’s ill-advised war?
